Organic heirloom tomatoes…
in all of their knobby, imperfect wonderfulness – one of the best tastes of summer! They are lumpy & lovely & local (MN/WI).
Store Deal: $4.49/lb.
If you're new to the world of heirlooms they are the gems of the tomato world – despite their appearance! Heirlooms are not disease resistant so their vines produce less per acre than hybrid varieties, therefore they're not mass-produced and fewer are available than the more perfect-looking hybrids. Plus they are a bit fragile and do not travel well – so we get them close to home so that you can savor their more intense & varied flavors.
And when you're in the store, check out our new-used, tiered, wooden shelf – it is fabulous for displaying produce! Thanks to Eastside Co-op for gifting us their old shelf.
